Rocky – ADOPTION PENDING!

3 years old – used to the quiet life – a bit plump – nice friendly guy – might really like a buddy!!

Rocky is a young 3 year old dog who is used to quiet life in an apartment with an elderly owner. He is clean in the house on a schedule (he is peepad and housetrained but as his owner became more disabled, his routine suffered). (He also has not been getting as much activity as he would like and need, so he’s a bit plump right now). Rocky is nice and friendly with other dogs and everyone he meets (he has not had contact with children). He is fine with cats. — Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog.

Diamond – ready for adoption end of July, after her spay!

Sweet and smart – 18 pds – 8 years – quiet and friendly

Lovely and pretty 18-pound Diamond is just 8 years young and is pretty much a little Cadillac doggie with many years ahead to be your loving and devoted pet. She has been a Mommy to many pups in a breeding situation. She is comfortable around well-socialised dogs, she settles in a crate after a short song of protest, and also vocalises for about 3 minutes when left alone, but then is quiet and clean. She is nicely housetrained and friendly (she’s not used to leash walking as she was able to walk off leash on the breeder’s property up to this point), but she is keen to learn and a wise lady. She has good recall and is quiet outside. She will be spayed end of July and ready for placement then! This pretty lady is ready to have a lovely life with you! — Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.

Manny – ADOPTED ! :)

About 5 years – obedient, loving, polite –  would like to live in the country – prefers to be the only animal but doesn’t mind other dogs who have good manners

Manny is a 5-6 year old male who has been dearly loved and was very reluctantly surrendered by his owner because they just couldn’t be home enough to give him the time that he deserves.  Manny is crate trained and is not a big barker. He is smart, obedient and responds well to basic commands. It is felt that Manny would do better in a home with no other pets and with someone who can be home most of the day. While Manny walks nicely on leash, he can be reactive, but with an experienced human hand, all will be well. Manny would benefit from a home in the country with a yard. He is the ideal pet for someone home quite a bit who would love a polite, smart and loving dog to love and walk with. Would you like to meet little Manny?

Tyson – cute little boy who needs strong and experienced pack leader

About five – 12 pds – just was fixed and is doing well with housetraining – loving and cuddly but needs a strong leader – no cats, no young children – need routine and exercise – big alarm bark, too noisy for apartments

Tyson  is a  small, friendly and handsome guy who is about 5 years old, 12 pounds. This poor boy was surrendered to a shelter and was never fixed, so that means he has some dominant tendencies and needs a strong pack leader to take the lead. He was never housetrained but is learning well now. He is very very loving  and cuddly. He will dominate submissive male dogs. No young children,  no cats. He needs a routine. When visitors come, he should be sent to his dog bed and invited to visit when he is calm. He is good with visitors, but barks on their arrival. He has a big voice and is too loud for an apartment. With time in the right home, this guy will be a lovely, lovely pet with so much love to give — Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.

Buddy – nice gentle and loving boy with a vibrant coat!

8 years old – 15 pounds – gentle and loving – nice manners – loves to cuddle – housetrained

Buddy is a  8 year- old  red Min Pin, 15 pounds, fully house trained and  gentle and very loving.  He likes to sleep in his own bed but jumps  on his human’s lap for cuddles. He was owned by a  man whose relationship split up and sadly, poor Buddy was left to try and find a new home and family – forever! —Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog.

SAMMY – adoption pending

sammy 1

Sammy 2

8 years and 23 pounds – loved and cared for – housetrained – great recall – quiet – not used to other dogs but would likely be fine with a quiet dog companion

Sammy  is an 8 year old  shihtzu  (23 pounds) who  for all his life has been the loved and cared for  pet  of elderly owners who unfortunately both have become seriously ill.  He has excellent  teeth and is clean in the house.  His foster Mom says he loves the garden and comes when he is called. Like  all shihtzus,  when he is frightened or  confused he  does  the air-snap thing  but if allowed to relax, very soon settles down.  His  tail wags  most  of the time  and he is quiet  in the car  and garden. Sammy has  accepted the other dogs but he  is not used to  living with other dogs.  But he would likely be fine with a quiet brother or sister. Would you like to meet his little cutie? —Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.

FOSTER PARENTS NEEDED

Hello! Would you like to foster a dog in need? Our rescue cannot save dogs that have been abandoned or rescued from a shelter or puppy mill unless we have foster homes with loving folk like you to help prepare dogs for their forever homes. Minpinerie is a non-profit Ottawa-based organization made up of dedicated dog-loving volunteers who rescue and foster miniature pinschers that have been surrendered by their owners, willingly released by puppy mills or breeders, or abandoned in shelters. If you have the room in your home and your heart, (or know of someone who might) please let us know by filling out the application online and help us out by giving one of these sweeties a loving temporary place to stay on their journey to their forever home. You can find out more about a dog that might fit your family and lifestyle by calling or writing to Louise at loulouonline@rogers.com or filling in the volunteer application.
